Marvel at red stone pillars at Isimila

Tanzania Must See Marvel at red stone pillars at Isimila

These wonderful stone pillars were formed as a result of soil erosion on the land leaving the red standing pillars. They are part of an archaeological site, with important finds from the Stone Age. There are hammerstones, axeheads, flints and scrapers that are 60,000-100,000 years old on display. But! I thought the pillars were far more impressive, could have stayed here the whole day admiring the colours. This too is Tanzania!

About Tanzania

Tanzania is well-known for the spectacular Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro crater and mount Kilimajaro. But! To get away from the crowds I choose to venture south instead and was surprised by what more the country has to offer!
